Years ago, i got plans and started to build a Littlewing LW5. Ive not done much with it because i wasnt sure what to use for a powerplant. The designer talked about using the Rotax 914 and didnt seem to think there were many other engines worth using for this gyro. I was just going thru craigslist and found a 90 horse Mccollough engine. Wondering if anyone knows if this engine could possibly be a good candidate for my build??

I personally wouldn't want that loud temperamental beast spitting oil on my windscreen. Perhaps some other ideas could be had from these folks.
I'd personally love to see a Vernal radial on the nose, but it may be some time before one winds up on craigslist.
